This is a small turbo with the wastegate set at 8-10 psi. Its the most you can do on a stock setup. i ran this for years with out issue.

It depends on how you drive and the efficiency of the setup. I didnt need one till i opened the cutout. Your Saleen exhaust will keep your power in check and you should be fine clutch wise. The more you drag race it the faster it will wear.
